Abstract

Chronic renal ischemia leads to renal fibrosis and atrophy. Activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system is one of the main mechanisms driving chronic renal ischemic injury. The aim of the present study was to define the effect of aliskiren in chronic ischemia of the kidney. Two-kidney, one-clip mice were used to study chronic renal ischemia. Aliskiren significantly lowered the blood pressure in mice with renal artery constriction (92.1±1.1 vs. 81.0±1.8 mm Hg, P
